Scarlett is trying to find the height of a dam. She stands 90 meters away from the dam and records the angle of elevation to the top of the dam to be 26º.
Scarlett's height is 1.65 meters, so the height of the dam is (ANSWER HERE) meters.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you are looking for \(h\) \[\tan(26^\circ)=\frac{h1.65}{90}\] which is really another way of saying multiply \[90\times \tan(26^\circ)\] and add \(1.65\) to the result to get \(h\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2now you are really being silly a) you cannot find \(\tan(26^\circ)\) by hand b) of course you have a calculator you have almost an infinite number of calculators how did you get to openstudy?
